HOMEOWNER HANDBOOK


WELCOME TO SINGLETREE AT DIA MASTER ASSOCIATION.

The Association has prepared this booklet to assist you with basic information about the Association, its architectural policies and procedures, and with other rules of the community. We hope you will find it helpful, and will refer to it when you have questions about covenant enforcement, are preparing a request for the Architectural Review Committee, or need information about other association matters.

Any questions or concerns that need clarification should be directed to the Property Management Company. If they are unable to respond to you, they will forward the issue to the Association Board of Directors.

COMMON QUESTIONS

The Singletree at DIA Master Association is a not-for-profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of Colorado. The Association is administered by a Board of Directors who have the responsibility for financial management, enforcement of covenants, and provision of certain services to members of the Association. Each person residing within the Singletree community is a mandatory member of the Association with obligations to abide by the covenants and pay assessments. The members of the Association shall meet at least annually to elect Directors and to conduct other business as may properly come before the Association.

The Association is governed by several documents: Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions; Bylaws, Articles of Incorporation, and this booklet. Please review these materials at your earliest convenience so you are familiar with the obligations and requirements of members.

The Association maintains perimeter greenbelts, walking paths, monument signs, and the exterior of fences adjacent to any of these areas. Most of these areas are designated as Tracts on the recorded plat of the subdivision and are owned or will be owned by the Association. Maintenance obligations are as follows:

· Watering, mowing, edging, fertilizing, pruning, and clean-up in irrigated landscaped areas
· Repair or replacement of damaged fences from normal wear and tear for those fences adjacent to open space area. Damage caused by owners will be repaired at the owner?s cost.
· Snow removal on walking trails and/or sidewalks adjacent to open space areas and greenbelts. Owners are responsible to remove snow from sidewalks adjacent to their own property lines (front, or front & side if corner lots).
· Periodic inspection, clean up, and repair of drainage areas and detention ponds.
· Weekly curb-side pickup of household trash from each home.
· Liability insurance for common areas, drainage basins, and detention ponds, and directors/officers protection insurance.

The Association is NOT responsible for the following:
· No snow removal on streets ? all streets within the community are public streets and City of Aurora is responsible for snow removal.
· No maintenance of any home or privately owned lot ? this is the responsibility of each owner.
· Generally the Association has no authority to intervene in matters of civil law such as boundary or drainage disputes. In some cases, the City of Aurora Police Department or Code Enforcement office may handle matters more effectively than the Association. Items of this nature might include roaming animals, abandoned vehicles, or persistent noise problems.



ARCHITECTURAL POLICIES

A spirit of cooperation between the Architectural Review Committee (the ?ARC?) and the members of the Association will go far in creating a harmonious environment to benefit all homeowners. This will help protect your financial investment and provide compatibility of improvements.

All improvements you plan to make on your property MUST BE SUBMITTED AND APPROVED by the ARC prior to installation, unless a specific ?pre-approval? is listed in the following pages. The term ?improvement? includes such items as landscaping, fencing, patios, decks, pools, hot tubs, play equipment, pet enclosures, deck covers, gazebos, room additions, and exterior housing materials and colors. All reviews are made on their individual merit - approval or denial in one instance does not necessarily mean the same decision in a different set of circumstances.

Any improvement installed without approval is subject to removal at the owner?s sole expense. The owner may also be subject to fines or other legal action.



PLEASE NOTE: On-site personnel, such as a sales person or construction supervisor, do not have authority to approve architectural request items ? you must submit them to the ARC as specified below.




SUBMITTAL PROCEDURES

1. Requests for approval should be mailed or faxed to the Management Company (see introductory page for address and fax numbers). A submittal form is included at the back of this booklet for your use. The management company will track the requests through the ARC process and will return information to you regarding the status of your request.

2. Plans and specifications should be detailed and include the following:
· Plot plan showing the location of the improvement(s)
· Landscaping description ? identify trees, shrubs, mulch areas, flower beds, vegetable plots, walkways, etc.
· Height, width, length, materials description, and color samples for any structures or equipment
· Paint samples must be at least 8? x 10?
· Don?t forget to include your name, your address and phone number (and a mailing address for you if different than that of the property)

3. PLAN AHEAD! The ARC strives to respond to requests quickly, however, the Committee normally meets only once per month, and it may take up to 30 days for a response to be sent to you.

Decisions will be mailed to you in written format and will be one of four responses:
· Approval
· Approval with conditions
· Request for additional information
· Denial

If a request is denied, you may appeal the decision of the ARC to the Board of Directors by submitting a written request through the management company within 45 days of denial. The Board of Directors will then set a date for a hearing and notify you as to the time and place.



DESIGN GUIDELINE SUMMARY

Following is an alphabetical list of improvements, some ?pre-approved? items for more commonly requested changes, and several items that are specifically prohibited. This is not intended to be an all-inclusive list of possible submittal items -- any item not included must be submitted for approval.

BE SAFE! IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, ASK FIRST!

Approval is required prior to installation. Due to the open nature of this community, and the Association?s desire to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance, free-standing structures such as sheds, greenhouses, playhouses, and forts are not permitted.

Other structures, such as gazebos or playsets will be evaluated on their individual merit, use, location on lot, and appearance.

Structures should be placed to avoid unreasonable influence into neighboring yards.
